The 1w Caspian Gull spent the whole hour I was at the fishing boats cruising in front on the boats
10.00-11.00 from the fishing boats after the rain had stopped:
Brent Goose: 56 up
Red-throated Diver: 5 up    3 down
Fulmar: 6 down
Gannet: 69 down
Cormorant: minimum 1,000 down
Turnstone: 1 on beach
Caspian Gull: regular 1w bird
Kittiwake: 185 down
Guillemot: 532 down
Razorbill: 274 down
A wander around the trapping area saw very little but a Peregrine and 2 Marsh Harriers were notable.
At The Patch nothing of note over the boil or on the beach, just 3 colour ringed birds. A Peregrine was sitting on the rails above last years eyrie.
Another visit to the fishing boats saw much the same as earlier.

At the southern end of the ARC an albino Egyptian Goose was the highlight. At Boulderwall the usual Tree Sparrows and a Bittern showed well in the ditch by the track.
On Burrowes the 1w Glaucous Gull was roosting among the Great Black Backed Gulls, 3 Goldeneye were on the lake, the Black-throated Diver was reported on Burrowes. 2 Smew and another Bittern were at Christmas Dell and a Great White Egret flew through.
The 2 Tundra Bean Geese were seen again today on Scotney by RO.
